1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Big, roomy inside, comfortable vehicle. Good stock stereo and fine build quality. Good paint. Now the negative. I hope Ford changes those automatic trannys. I maintained mine but still went out at 130K miles. Jeep Cherokee/Wrangler, Isuzu Trooper and Toyota use the same AT which is much more reliable. Explorer has poorly designed brakes and rotors. It's also too heavy which causes tires to wear out to fast. The alignment seemed to go out often. Until Ford makes some changes, I expect to stick to Jeep Cherokee/Wrangler. It's ashame because I used to be into Fords.

Best Features

Good size in and out. Great on road trips becuase it has a good ride. Quite on the inside. Cheap parts and not expensive vehicle to buy.

Worst Features

Change the tranny! Change the brakes and rotors. The engine is very hard to work on in comparison to Toyotas and Jeeps. Front lights turn grey after they get scratched up and are too expensive to replace as a unit.
